Publisher Description

The first in a stunning new series from the author of The Silence of the Sea, winner of the 2015 Petrona Award for best Scandinavian Crime Novel.

The Legacy is the first installment in a fantastic new series featuring the psychologist Freyja and the police officer Huldar.

The only person who might have the answers to a baffling murder case is the victim’s seven-year-old daughter, found hiding in the room where her mother died. And she’s not talking.

Newly-promoted, out of his depth, detective Huldar turns to Freyja for her expertise with traumatized young people. Freyja, who distrusts the police in general and Huldar in particular, isn’t best pleased. But she’s determined to keep little Margret safe.

It may prove tricky. The killer is leaving them strange clues, but can they crack the code? And if they do, will they be next?

The legacy

Surprising twist end was very satisfying

Gross!

I liked many of the characters in this book, and the mystery was intriguing. But the murders were incredibly disgusting, and the denoument/solution too Gothic. I won’t be reading another by this author!

Not the Yrsa I knew

This book is not like anything she has done before, and I hope won’t do again.
